Pours a deep black with a two finger thickness head that lingers. Smells a delicious combination of coffee, molasses, and malts. Leaves a ton of lacing. Taste similar to smell, but with a great boozy taste. Heavy and excellent. Years ago when first entering craft beers I stumbled upon this, it became and instant favorite.

Great stout! great mouth feel and aroma. Pours a small head and goes down quick. This is a great offering by Stone and a top notch stout. When available I will always grab a few. Flat out enjoyable stout that draws you in.

Bottom Line: Like stouts? look no further!
